Crisis Committees


The Age of Sturlungs

As the great Snorri Sturluson returns to Iceland with news from Norway, the legislative Alþingi prepares to meet. With internal and external threats alike, the goðar will need to create new legislation and policies to counteract Norwegian aggression, deep blood feuds, and good old Icelandic treachery in this frosty committee.

 

Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table

In the late 5th century, newly crowned King Arthur and his knights face both magical and historical threats to Arthur’s sovereignty. With Celtic and Anglo-Saxon forces undermining Arthur’s rule over the Britons, and Merlin’s prophecies warning of mystical events to come, the Knights of the Round Table have difficult obstacles ahead on their ultimate quest to unify Britain.

 

BP Board of Directors

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill was one of the worst environmental disasters of the 21st century.

Ruling the Neo-Incan State

In a clash of civilizations, the Spanish and Incan Empires meet in Peru in the midst of an Incan succession crisis.

Which major world power will come out on top is up to the delegates in this anti-imperialist committee.

 

Taharqa's Kush Kingdom

For two generations starting in 1078 BCE, the Nubian Kingdom of Kush was one of the Mediterranean’s most powerful nations. In this committee, the ancient African kingdom must defend against an Assyrian invasion of Jerusalem and the growing influence of other ancient kingdoms infringing on Kushite land.
